THIS REVIEW APPLIES ONLY TO F8Z492 A2DP RECEIVER, NOT BELKIN'S NEW HD BT RECEIVER.

This device has great audio quality and terrible range (not what is claimed), but if you've already bought it you're in luck! There is a quick modification that can restore this device to the advertised range.

Modification Instructions (you'll need a small flat head screwdriver and a hot glue gun):
Pop the top off of it with the screwdriver starting at the ports.
Pull out the circuit board and you'll see a large piece of metal. This metal is entirely unnecessary and serves only to satisfy customers who innately feel that heavier is more valuable.
The piece of metal is held in place with double sided tape, so just pop it out.
Put the circuit board back in place (it should sort of snap in).
Put hot glue around the edge of the enclosure and put the top back in place.
Now this device conforms to all the specifications that Belkin specifies.

I hope this helps everyone out! Belkin's support department has chosen to ignore my inquiries.

The specifications of this device say that you can get up to 33 feet of range with this adapter. However, I found that realistically I can only get around 20 feet before I lose connectivity with my Samsung Galaxy cell phone. If I block the line of sight then it gets even worse.

This Belkin Bluetooth receiver degrades the quality of the audio playback to completely unacceptable levels.

I recently purchased 3 different models of bluetooth for a project involving recording the audio off a mobile device using bluetooth audio output.

I ran each devices audio through a high quality set of reference speakers: Tannoy 8" and a KRK Active Sub.

As a test I go and forth between playing music out of the mobile device using a standard 1/8" audio cable, and then switching over to the Belkin Bluetooth device.

I was shocked at how terrible the audio sounded via the Belkin Bluetooth device. It completely degraded the quality of the audio output in the following ways:

- the low-end was all missing, the sub hardly output anything
- the sound sound tinty and mushed, like you compressed your MP3 file down to 64kpbs.
- the sound also had an echo to it, like listening to it in a large room.

I suggest the Logitech Bluetooth receiver(model 980-000540) over this device by a strong margin.

I bought this bluetooth receiver to adapt for use in a 2008 Infiniti G35, which has auxiliary audio/video inputs in the console armrest, along with wiring for an Apple Ipod. Being that I don't have an Ipod but do have a Samsung android smartphone with bluetooth, I thought this receiver would meet my needs, and it has, even more so now that I've learned of another tool to assist me. More on that later. First, I needed to modify the receiver so as to avoid the bulk of a power adapter. For the 12v auxiliary power connector in the console armrest, I plugged in a Griffin Powerjolt Dual Universal USB Micro, one port for this receiver and the other to power my phone. Now, I just needed to modify the receiver to take power from the USB port which easily met the receiver power port's 5-volt 180ma specification.

Modification of the Belkin receiver amounted to first opening the case, using a screwdriver or knife to pry off the top by carefully working around the top from the back (port) side of the case. Next, the circuit board was easily popped out so that the metal disk could be removed and discarded. While the circuit board is out of the case, a hole can be made in the side of the case nearest the power port, through which the USB cable will be fed. The hole is easily made with a hot soldering iron tip, or drill and should be kept small enough to be a tight fit, helping to keep the cable from being easily pulled out of the receiver.

After cutting a standard USB cable to about 4 inches in length, the cut end was prepped by stripping the insulation as needed to expose the red and black wires, then tinning those wires to aid soldering them to the circuit board.

I've read a number of reviews that have stated this receiver produced poor sound quality. Let's clear that up right now: This little guy sounds great! The fidelity is more than acceptable for 98% of people who will use it. I have a couple of friends who are audiophiles that griped a little bit but said they would have no problem listening to music through this on a regular basis. But my speaker system cost me about $1000 though and theirs cost about $6-10,000. If you're more like me then you'll like the quality of this device. If you're more like them, go for the Sonos and drop the extra cash. But generally speaking, trust me, this sound quality is great!

HOWEVER!!! I mainly purchased this so I could stream music from my Nexus One (Android phone) through my speakers in the living room while I was in the kitchen cooking (where I spend most of my time). I do not live in a big house and there is line of sight between the stove and the TV - probably a 20 foot distance. At that distance this thing will drop in and out a lot!!! Someone doesn't even need to block the line of sight, they just need to be near the device and it somehow interferes with the music. When I move it even close (say, 10 feet?) still if someone comes between my phone and the receiver it will drop the music. The best luck I've had so far is to leave my phone in a corner where I know no one will walk between the two. But that defeats the whole purpose of why I bought this. I'm going to experiment a bit and see if I can find a more suitable placement to get better results and I'll let everyone know if I find any worth sharing.
